Elkhart County saw a new high in daily cases, 364 new cases and 6 new deaths. The previous high for daily cases in the county was just hit the day before. The new figures blow that figure away by 100+ cases.

St. Joseph County also hit a new high with 275 new cases.

Pulaski County also saw a new daily high. 


The latest data reported by the Indiana State Dept. of Health indicates the state has hit another new daily high in cases of COVID-19. On Oct. 21st 2,880 new cases were reported. Since Oct. 15th the state has recorded three new record highs in daily cases in the span of just six days. 

That is the highest level the state has seen during the pandemic. Indiana’s 42 newly recorded COVID-19 deaths raises the state’s pandemic death toll to 4,065, including confirmed and presumed coronavirus infections.

THE LATEST: Based on the latest figures released by the Indiana State Dept. of Health, on July 16th, St. Joseph County saw its highest number of new daily COVID-19 cases yet. The county reported 68 new cases on Thursday. 

This week in a four-day time span from July 12-July 16, the county has logged three of its highest daily case counts since the pandemic began. On July 12 there were 63 new cases and on July 14 there were 58 new cases. 

Dr. Mark Fox with the St. Joe Co. Health Dept. says he attributes some of the rise to large gatherings and the State of Indiana moving to Stage 4.5 in reopening. He says he is thankful the state paused and did not move to Stage 5. He says two new testing sites have been set up at St. Adalbert and at WUBS. "This is a very worrisome trend for the county," he adds. 

"What a difference two weeks makes," says Mayor James Mueller of South Bend.
